The father and son combination of John and Sam Hutchison handled the horrendous conditions better than the rest of the field to win the Port Tyre World Foursomes Championship at Port Macquarie Golf Club on Saturday.
The cold blustery winds played havoc with the scoring and the Hutchison’s finished twelve shots ahead of the rest of the field over the 27 holes.
They had 77 for the opening 18 holes and then a further 44 for the extra nine holes.
The runners up were Stuart Rayner and Fred Fouche with 84 and 49.
Brian Delroy and Tom Liddell won the B grade championship with 146, one shot better than Kerry Lewis and John Scaysbrook, while Bryan Stewart and Graeme Sim took out C grade with 149 from Maurie Ferry and Allan Leahy.
John Tracey and Brian Potts won the 27 holes nett with 116.5 from Craig Jennings and Wes Nowak.
The 18 holes nett went to Kevin Hall and Dale Murray while the 9 holes event was won by Nick Conditsis and Matt Cutcliffe.
Dave Harris and Peter White took out the 18 holes gross.
The ball competition was conducted on the first 18 holes and went down to 77.5 nett.
There was no nearest to the pin at the fifth hole because the wind blew the card out of its holder.
The other nearest to the pins went to Wes Nowak, Terry Jones and Brian Delroy.
